Two Hearts, One Lifetime...

I just got the Anniversary Birds stamp set from Verve Visual. I loved this set the moment I saw it. I visited Maren's blog and loved the card she made with this set. I am going to a wedding this weekend and decided to shamelessly case Maren's card. My friends colors are black, red and white so I decided to use those colors for the card. My base is a piece of 6 x 12 Black Textured CS folded in half. Then I matted the Black CS with a piece of White Daisy CS and then matted that with a piece of Cranberry CS that I ran through my Cuttlebug. I stamped the birds on White Daisy CS using Brilliance Graphite Black Ink, Sweet Leaf for the leaves and branches and Cranberry for the sentiment. To finish the card I added some ribbon and just blooms!!! :D

Stamps: Anniversary Birds (Verve Visual) Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black Ink, Sweet Leaf & Cranberry (CTMH) Paper: Black, White Daisy, & Cranberry CS (CTMH) Other: Black grosgrain & Just Blooms (CTMH), Black brad (Spare parts)


Have a Fabulous Weekend!!! :D
